How Can I Make Money from Home?

I get asked this all the time. “ How can I stay home with my kids and make money.”

Let me answer that question with a question.

Who is the best person to teach you that…someone who has been doing it for the past 12 years or someone who has never done it?

I’ve been successfully staying home with my family for the past 12 years.  I always make enough to take care of us when my husband has been out of work due to medical issues.  That’s been a lot.  Since 2005 he has had 3 hernia repair surgeries, a broken thumb, and a brain hemorrhage.  Am I a millionaire?  NO.  Do I pretend I can show you how to be a millionaire?  NO.

I would probably get more of you to sign up for my $12.95 class showing you how to make money from home if I said “Sign up, do nothing and make millions” but I’m not THAT person.  I would NOT do that to you.  I could probably get you to give me $500 if I scammed you.  But I’m not THAT person.  I would NOT do that to you.

Why do so many of you fall for the scams?  Because you think you can take the easy road.

Why are there so many scams out there?  Because those of you who fall for them are too embarrassed that you fell for them to turn them in.  Turning them in would be admitting that you fell for the scam.

There is no easy path.  I’s called “working” from home, not “get paid to sit on your ass & do nothing”.  If you are willing to put  time and effort into it, I can show you how to make money from home.  If you are willing to do what it takes and spend just an hour or so per day, I can show you how to make money from home.

I Suck at Decorating

I get so upset with myself sometimes because I have absolutely NO sense of style and NO sense of how to decorate. We’ve moved into this nice house and I want it to look nice. I have been cleaning every day. Sweeping and mopping floors and keeping the dishes done up on a daily basis. That’s a big step for me. In the past I would do a once a week cleaning and that was a PAIN. It’s not easy balancing working from home and keeping house and kids and husband and etc… But… Now, I’m realizing if I do it daily, it only takes a short amount of time out of my day and it’s much easier. My vacuum isn’t used to every day use so it broke down on me. Gotta go grab a new one today. 😉

Now I want to start decorating. I want to decorate my porch for each holiday. I want to make my home look nice and comfortable for visitors. So…wish me luck. Maybe…just maybe…I will have pictures soon. I am going to take a decorating course. AAAHHHHH… I’ve always wanted to take one, but I never did because I wasn’t sure I could do it.

That’s a whole other blog post, though. I’ve never really done anything that I could or thought I might fail at. I’ve always been a success at everything because I’ve never stepped out of my comfort zone into an area where I could fail.

So…decorating my new home is an area where I could fail. I know NOTHING about it. We shall see how this turns out. I’ll keep you posted. Feel free to leave any decorating suggestions in the comments.

Our Lake House

I’ve always wanted a house on the lake. It’s been my dream since I was a little girl. Due to circumstances in our lives lately, we have been led back to NY (where I swore I would never live again). But…one good thing about it we ended up living in a small house right on the bay!! We’re a 1/4 mile from the beach at the lake.

The days here are beautiful. Sunsets are breathtaking!!  The picture to the left is of one of the first sunsets I witnessed here.  It was so calming that I forgot to take more pics.  🙂

Working from home allows me the flexibility to live wherever I want and work when I want, not when someone says I have to. I am so looking forward to warmer weather. We’re going to put a dock in down at the bay and we’ll be able to sit out there and relax or fish or have coffee in the morning. I love it here!!  This is a nice little town.  It’s going to be overrun with people soon for the summer season.  I can’t wait to meet new people!!  The perfect way to start over…

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.
